Meet our Activities Coordinator, Lesley Watson

I have worked for Wadhurst Manor for a few years in many different roles, most recently as the Activities Coordinator. My role is to ensure that we have meaningful and tailored activities to suit everyone. It brings me great joy to know that residents are having a good day because of me. 

Activities at Wadhurst Manor

On a weekly basis we have many visitors to the home from the people like the University of the Third age and local small animal farms, who bring in their chickens and sheep. We also like to go out shopping and on day trips to local garden centres and when the weather is good picnics and tours of the beautiful local countryside. We have speciality days at the home which could be a theme of a country, or for specific times of year, including Halloween, Bonfire Night or Christmas. We have card games and art classes and a serious knitting team in the home who produce blankets and premature baby clothes for the local maternity unit.
